Orofino Vineyards Cabernet Franc Rosè 2020

Cawston, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Pozza Vineyard, located in the Olalla Gap between Keremeos and Penticton, this cabernet franc rosé gets its pale colour from just a short time on skins. This is delicate and savoury, exuding cabernet franc character with bright cranberry, grapefruit, and fresh herbs. Lighter bodied and crisp, there's just a pinch of residual sugar (5.5 g/L) to bring it into balance, leading to a dry finish. This is a winner year over year, and 2020 is no exception. Just make sure to stock up before the winery sells out.Tasted: 14 June 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 19.04 winery online, select private retailers BC 38.90 1500 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Orofino VineyardsDistributors: Winery Direct
